Default Recording Analog Cassette Tapes???

I have a Canopus ADVC300 and have been trying to record from an audio cassette tape. What am I doing wrong???

I assume that I can record Audio minus video with this device ...


Please Help!

The ADVC-300 requires a video source; the ADVC-110 is the only unit that has a audio-only feature.

Just use any video source, it doesn't matter what it is, and connect the output from your cassette player to the red/white audio inputs.

Default Still problems!

I plugged the audio from the tape player into the "Audio In" on the VCR and out from the VCR to the ADVC300 "Audio In", minus the Video wire being plugged into either ...though I have tried it both ways, with the "Video In" plugged in and unplugged.

No VHS tape in the VCR and power on ...with VHS, Still nothing.

Press play, nothing.

My computer recognizes the ADVC300 as "AVC compliant DV tape recorder/player". I assume that this is OK because I can record Video/Audio together.

I have tried several different ways and still nothing.

Any clues would be much appreciated.

:O)

The tape player's outputs should be plugged directly into the ADVC unit. Then, just run V-Out from your VCR into the yellow V-In on the ADVC unit. Play something out (or switch the VCR to 'tuner' mode)...the ADVC just wants a video signal to commence the conversion process.
